I know I just posted an Ask the Readers question last week, and I don’t usually post them this close together, but can we just talk about eggs for a minute today. More specifically can we talk about the price of eggs?!
Last week I paid $3.39 for a dozen eggs. This week I paid $2.99. Now, $2.99 is much better than $3.39, but seriously $3 is a lot to pay for a dozen eggs.
From what I have read the price has gone up for various reasons including a bird flu and the cost of feed among other things. Whatever the reason it looks like eggs might be higher priced for quite awhile.
And yes I am complaining about $3, but even at $3 a dozen I will admit that eggs are still a pretty economical choice for a meal. A dozen eggs can feed quite a few people and makes breakfast for dinner still a great choice for a quick, easy, and budget friendly meal. It just isn’t quite the budget friendly meal it used to be.
Now for my Ask the Readers question.
I am curious what you are paying for eggs where you live. Have they gone up in price quite a bit?
